these situations. how do you explain? >> well, the national football league has a real serious problem. apart from the concussion syndrome, it's going to cost them hundreds of millions of dollars in the future, you have a league where if you touch tom brady, you get a five-game suspension. if you batter your wife, your spouse, whatever, nothing happens. very little happens. this is just the latest in a series of extremely violent incidents that has really i think marched the image of that league and has a lot of people concerned. >> what can they do? i mean, this is stuff that takes place off the field. >> it takes place off the field. it also, the roots of it, begins before they become national football league players. it's a societal issue. it's not just a national football league issue. it's something the league has to deal with in a zero tolerance fashion even though many of these incidents do happen off the field, zero tolerance factor. hopefully no more of these going forward and we can enjoy the fun highlights. >> we will get to them. we'll go straight to the dallas cowboy game. still griev

the national football league, some of them, some of the members of the national football league, you are seeing incidents of suicide from traumatic brain injury, and this is something that the service men and women suffer constantly. and, and so how does one, um, in a family environment, look out for that particular person? i mean, they may have been assessed and i go back to it, that mike has mentioned, everyone has mentioned, there are tons of programs that can assess, that can identify, but what does the immediate family need to be very sensitive to in terms of that military member? well, i think jen referred to the isolation. so, i think family members really need to pay attention. and, and be of assistance as possible whenever necessary, to be sure and make sure that people are not isolated. they are not separate. they're not alone. that they have some sort of social support. that they have some activities to do. people want to be reconnected to something. it's that lost [inaudible] military. even though they may be putting everyone in harm's way? that's right, and that is when you have to

-have-you. this is an issue more about the national football league and their accountability. there is a small part of me that thinks in the league offices they are breathing a sigh of relief that it's a discussion about gun control and not about the violent culture in the national football league. >> bill: that's interesting. meredith? >> we were talking about this at break because i think this is something that is writ large whether it's sports or politics the idea that the only way to get a tension is compressed mediums, a tweet or 90 seconds bob costas had and since this interview, he gave another interview talking about the comments. he said his one regret is he violated his rule to take a new answered issue and try to weigh it out in too short of a period of time. and so i am wondering if this speaks larger more largely about what we do as a media and there is a lot of overlap between sports and political media and whether we are criticizing the wrong thing. >> that's a great point, meredith. i really do believe 90 seconds is certainly not enough time to talk about
. it was an opportunity we have rarely. but to be able to be invited by the national football league to submit a bid and build up a course of support is incredibly helpful to the city. i have been looking for those days where we celebrated just as enthusiastically those super bowl wins with joe montana, steve young and coming down market street. as we did with the giants a year and a half to two years ago. these were incredible inspirational opportunities we have, now hosting a super bowl. being part of a bay area effort to bring this incredibly helpful event that isn't just one few hours worth of games. there's all kinds of events that happen during super bowl week. i believe that the bulk of them will be hosted here in san francisco because this will be where we reflect strong infrastructure of tourism, where we host things and do well. this is what san francisco is about. we have an incredible committee of people that have volunteered and put forth i want to be part of this team effort to, build a bay area super bowl event that will be not only long lasting for the sports itself but with daniel's

there was any evidence supporting the suspension of the players. i'm disappointed in the national football league and in the way they conducted an investigation because i now know having read and seen all of the testimony that there was certainly no evidence that the bounties exhibited. and frankly i was a prosecutor in this city for ten years. i understand how to do investigations. and the investigation that the league did was sloppy the investigation that they did was more outcome-focused than frankly process-focused. >> but tagliabue also said the system was at fault. >> well, i think what paul indicated in the transcript having seen all of the evidence is that there was no basis to punish the players. and think that -- >> but -- >> and i think that as soon as the transcript is released and everybody can read the testimony under oath think it's important for all americans to see what greg williams said when he said that there was no bounty. >> but doesn't this -- by tagliabue, doesn't this undermine roger good elise authority. >> well, at times when you make
think you have to discourage people from carrying guns. and particularly in the national football league, with everything that's going on about the clear connection now between mental health and brain damage and erratic behavior exacerbated and probably one of the most violent games on earth, romeo crennel that belcher was a leader and one of the first guys in drills. we didn't see this coming. and that's the problem. number one, they are not trained to see it coming. the gun lobby is just so overwhelming. i think that if athletes, for example, who if they are looking for a civil rights campaign, this is it it. those athletes who are sick and tired of this, i think this is their civil rights campaign. to get guns off the street. >> i'm a sportsman. i have firearms. i hunt deer and pheasants and all that kind of stuff. you want law-abiding citizens to give up their rights to own firearms at this point? that's a fair question. >> it is a fair question. and i take every opportunity to emphasize. i'm glad you asked it again. absolutely not. >> well then you have a law-abiding citizen who hap

of talking about mental health in the national football league was taboo. it was seen as associated with weakness. you could talk about the compound fracture in your leg, but you can't talk about your depression. now that we know conclusively that concussions are linked to issues like depression and suicidal thoughts, now that we know that this kind of mental health trauma comes out of the violence of the sport, more and more people are talking about it. yet, at the same time there is still an incentive to not disclose when you have this kind of physical trauma to your head and brain. i mean, the other big story in the nfl yesterday was the san francisco 49ers who have a new starting quarterback, colin kaepernick, who was given the starting job because alex smith was out for a week with a concussion, and now a lot of people are saying, wow, alex smith losing his job is an incentive for players not to report when they get head injuries. we know how conclusively they're he linked. i do have to say one thing, though. you're absolutely right, tamron, that people have different ways of d
